CAIRO, Feb 22 (Reuters) - Kuwait will close its land and sea border crossings, with the exception of shipping operations and workers in the neutral zone, from Wednesday until March 30, the cabinet said on Monday on Twitter.

Citizens and domestic workers accompanying them are allowed to return through land and sea ports, as are citizens' first-degree relatives, the cabinet added. (Reporting by Nayera Abdallah and Ahmed Tolba; Editing by Hugh Lawson)
